Sogni Strani – Jerome Gaynor

You know what’s lame? When someone tries to tell you about their dreams. Amazingly, when Jerome Gaynor does it in comic form in his new book Sogni Strani, the results are pretty fantastic. That’s because he’s got his dream-recording method down to a science, which is one of the things we talk to him about on this episode of BUY THIS COMIC!
